Bos en Lommer (English: Bos and Lommer) is a neighborhood of Amsterdam, Netherlands. An urban district from 1990 to 2010, it was merged into the new Amsterdam-West borough at that time.

Situated in the west of Amsterdam, the Bos en Lommer quarter offers easy access to both the A10 motorway and public transport (Amsterdam metro route 50 mainly). Most of the buildings are four-story apartment blocks, with relatively low rents for students and elder people. Bos en Lommer is scheduled for urban renewal to increase high-income inhabitants.
